What’s the difference between a solo cellist and a cellist? – A doctor.

Instrument group

I am from Helsinki

I joined the orchestra in autumn 1989.

I like to play music that is well written.

The best thing about Helsinki is the sea.

The highlight of the spring 2016 season will be the last concert – Shostakovich and Mahler conducted by Jun Märkl (25-26 May).
